One quintessential dessert that says “Southern” to me is banana pudding. (I know, I know….it is made all over the place – please don’t shoot me.)
Two wonderful layers
I do not have a double boiler, so instead I placed the sugar, egg yolks, flour, milk and salt in a small pot and then turn the heat to medium. I stirred continuously until it started to thicken. It took me about 20 minutes to get it to the right stage.
Bud’s Best Cookies has been so kind to allow me to share their recipe with you. If you are not familiar with Bud’s Best Cookies, here’s a little background information: headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, the first Bud’s Best cookies were sold in 1993. Bud’s Best are known for their size – bite size. One thing I love about the different varieties is that a 6 oz. bag at my local Food World is only $1.
Did you know that there is a National Pudding Fest? I didn’t until just a few moments ago. The next fest will be October 5-6 in Tennessee. If you are planning on entering and live in the Heart of Dixie, I encourage you to support the home team and use Bud’s Best Vanilla Wafers.
